It wasn't working before?

Think of it as like any other client. One client cannot connect to another
client, right? Clients poll for listening servers, not for other polling

Hmm, I don't know exactly what you are asking here.
When an embedded server instance is running, it is an exclusive client
communicating with an instance of the server which is internal to
itself. When this client stops communicating with this internal server,
the server ceases to exist.

No remote client can connect to this "embedded server" because it has no
network interface. I don't know how (or whether) the situation will change
when Dmitry implements the XNET solution for local connection, though.
